SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — ClearPathGPS has expanded their management team with several software-industry experts.
Heather Burleson, a sales leader in the business solutions software space, joins the company as vice president of sales. Jill Bender, a SaaS marketing strategist, is the company’s new director of marketing. Kelsey Jones, an operations and customer-service leader in the mobile-app space, joins as director of customer success. These management positions—as well as several other recent ClearPathGPS hires—reflect the company’s increasing customer demand and commitment to investing in its GPS fleet tracking management solutions.
Steve Wells, co-founder and chief revenue officer, explains why ClearPathGPS has been hiring throughout 2020, even during the pandemic:
“The customers in which we serve are mostly essential service providers—plumbers, HVAC, delivery, roofers, etc. In a struggling economy, these field service businesses need to operate more efficiently, do more with less, while still focusing on providing outstanding service. Our GPS tracking solutions provide an affordable solution to help service businesses get the actionable business intelligence needed to streamline and improve their operations,” he said.
The COVID pandemic has created a dilemma for many fleet-driven service businesses. These companies need to continue fielding emergency calls from customers and dispatching drivers to jobsites, but they have to do so with their key employees working from home.
“As a result of this pandemic, we’ve seen a large percentage of our new customers contact us with the same challenge — needing to know where their service fleets are at any given time so they can quickly dispatch the right field tech to the job,” said Chris Fowler, co-founder and CEO. "With ClearPathGPS fleet tracking solutions, businesses have been able to quickly deploy our easy-to-use solutions and get the fleet visibility they need to solve this problem. Plus, they are benefiting from many other key features including automated virtual timecards, real-traffic and routing guidance, virtual geofences to monitor vehicle movements, and more.”
Businesses can use the company’s tracking solutions without signing a long-term contract. ClearPathGPS terms support the needs of its customers including a month-to-month plan that allows businesses to cancel anytime without penalty, and can suspend service if needed.
ClearPathGPS is continuing to grow its operations, even though they have already expanded its management team and added personnel to engineering, customer success and product management this year. The company is actively seeking full-time employees to join its product and engineering teams.
